Hamilton, AL asked in Foreclosure for Alabama

Q: My husband passed away, Home was foreclosed... I was basically locked out illegally. I’m disabled and was at the doctor

Office. I had to go through some nasty people to be given 3 hours to remove what was left in the home. The home sold for $10,000 more than was owed. The bank refuses to talk to me. What is my recourse?

A: Is the home in your name or just your deceased husband's? I'm assuming they foreclosed some time ago and filed some sort of ejectment action against you and him because you did not get out of the home immediately. Unfortunately, the time for you to file for chapter 13 bankruptcy and save your home, has come and gone.
